A very reasonable £10.50 at the moment, the serious bids haven't started yet

I recently bought one, same blue.
She's a beauty. Can't keep my hands off her.

In case you consider the drive to Chicago, go for it.

ooh, looks nice but be aware it is missing it's locking washers and trem bar, all of which can be replaced from Spares, but that the baseplate may be stripped... I'll tell you what, if I was a little closer...... Crying or Very sad Wink

Yes, its an option. Anything to subserve this hellish GAS. Shocked Very Happy Laughing 12 hour drive? Hmph, its cake.

I've asked the vendor if he'd send it to a depot on the US/Canada border in North Dakota - that cuts my commute to 1.5 hours.

Matter/antimatter, astrophysics and Mats (Westones). This blue Westone is so pretty, it could function as a natural balance when placed in proximity to the rough-hewn appeal of _The Mule_ aka the TV yellow Vantage... a kind of "anti-Mule" if you will.

Wow that's cheap. Someone get it! Spares would be cheaper than get a complete one, right?

AFAIK, Spares hasn't got any more bases left, but he's got the washers, bolts and wang bars... Steve has a fix for the baseplate if it's stripped but I'm picking that over the years the locks have been lost... God, someone in here buy it!! Laughing Cool

Thats about £110 these days.

I've not paid more than £130 for any of mine, and I'm soon to be an owner of 5, so I see no cause for alarm particularly ...

Hopefully you didn't buy any of your guitars in the USA. You could have spent too much^^...

125 USD ~ 77 GBP (1 USD ~0,6126 GBP)

Best wishes,
Hans

Hah, I wish they were done in a nice shade of green! But no, it's just poor camera quality. The body is routed for an HH setup, and the fretboard are rosewood, so it couldn't be an MX or SX. It's just a shoddy camera.

Yeah; green would have been cool!! But that is just(!) a black one shot either in a. bad lighting, or b. with an el-cheapo camera, or c. all of the above!! Laughing

Alright; how's this for a punt: based solely on the size of the bridge posts, I reckon this is a DX body as the ST has normal woodscrews affixing the bridge, whereas the DX had a Bendmaster with the corresponding large holes for said posts! To muddy the waters a little though, I can't see any sign of the holes for the stringlock on the headstock...

Anyone else have a punt?! Colt... Polly... Guy... Warren... Barry... Ian...???!! Laughing

Anyway, given that it has a spare neck it's almost worth bidding on as a resto project....

Is green meant to be an unlucky colour though and that's why they didn't do them? scratch

To be honest John, I've only given it a cursory glance... I've been too busy lately messing about with bows and arrows :arrow: , in between decorating clown , to look on eBay, and I definitely can't afford any more projects/guitars at the moment - more's the pity! Rolling Eyes

John, yer eyes are a hell of a lot better than mine! Shocked You should be in forensics or sumpthin'.

The pic so rough as to be of little help, but my guess would also be a DX, only because I see an opening above the neck pup which I'm assuming is the truss rod access. The ST's is in the headstock.

In any event, the important thing is that it's an Uncle Mats guitar--and with 2 of those amazing necks!! Great little project for someone. Too bad it's a wa-a-a-y over there! tongue

yep, its the kind of thing where - if you saw something like this locally - you could scarf it up in a flash without a second thought. The shipping might kill me all the way from Jolly Old.. No
